Hi everyone! I have the distinct pleasure of being assigned as the administrator of this community. I do not have a child with autism, but I do have a background in advocating on behalf of children of all ages who have autism or a related diagnosis. This is a large community with over 83,000 members, unified in raising concerns, sharing experiences, and learning more about autism related disabilities. The incidence of autism related disabilities is staggering, and the causes are unclear at best. The range of symptoms varies from child to child. Each child is truly unique and must be viewed in that light. Each of you brings an important perspective to our community, and I look forward to continued meaningful dialogue about issues affecting you, your child or children, and your family as a whole.
